Love Letters (Poetry), Poetry

Love Letter #22

If I had to choose

I would choose me every single damn time

your games were weak and your lines were not so sublime

nah they were a bit subpar

like if I had to walk into a dive bar

and order a Long Island iced tea

drunk in two seconds flat, that’ll be me

then puking my guts in the bathroom over you

like I drank a large glass of mildew

pretty rational person, who at times allow my emotions to get the best of me

but it took me quite some time to think clearly and see

that you were a destructive force that tried to bring me down

trust me, baby boy, I almost drowned

in your selfish pity party of a world

but I ain’t that kind of girl

finally got myself out

filled myself up with confidence and clout

because I decided to choose me

every. single. damn. time.

The “Love Letters” Series will be a collection of poetry written for and about love. Please comment below if you’re enjoying my thoughts and words. – Peace and Love
